Finding out you're expecting can bring both overwhelming joy and a bit of nervousness. As professional doulas we provide emotional, physical and educational support through your pregnancy, birth and early postpartum. Our years of experience and training allow us to guide you through each step of your journey. Whether your goal is to have a natural birth, medicated birth, unmedicated birth, or a planned cesarean we want to help you create a birth experience that YOU want and we will do so completely unbiased and judgement free. Your birth is just that, your birth. This is a monumental time in your life and we find it an honor to fully support you and the rest of your birth team during such an intimate and precious time.
Is it ever too early or too late to hire a doula?
Not possible! The earlier you hire the more time we have to get to know you. Decide you want a doula when you're in labor? That's ok. If our schedule allows, we are experienced and trained to be adaptable in many different situations including providing support within hours of being hired.
Will a doula take the place of my partner?
Absolutely not. Our doulas are there to provide support to the entire birth team. Does your partner want to help but isn't sure how? Don't worry. We can teach them different ways to support you so they are involved as they would like to be. Does your partner only want to be there for you emotionally? That's ok too. We are trained on many different ways to support you physically ranging from suggesting positions that will help move your labor forward to physically supporting you when it comes time to push.
